NYFW is rapidly approaching and we’re here to make what’s going on during this exhilarating and occasionally manic week a little more dissectible. IMG has released its slate of programing for NYFW: The Show (ICYMI: it’s February 10-15), with a combination of in-person and digital exhibits, events located at Spring Studios, and more.
On February 10, Rodarte is kicking off the calendar with a runway show at 4PM in Brooklyn. Later in the evening IMG will be hosting a party in brand new Authentic Hospitality hotspot Jac’s on Bond in honor of the label’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy. On February 11, IMG model Ella Elmhoff is hosting a pop-up called “Ella Elmhoff Likes To Knit” at Spring Studios, with an after-party cocktail moment at Spring Place. On the same day, RunwayX by Afterpay (NYFW: The Shows’ official sponsor) will begin to host runway shows with Aknvas, BruceGlen, Colin LoCascio, KGL, Melke, Private Policy, Sukeina, and Tia Adeola.
On February 13, NYFW: The Talks will return with ‘The Future of Fashion Fashion.’ Panelists Natalie McGrath, Lior Cole, Leila Mashouf, Rubi Labs, Matt Choon, and Nikki Ogunnaike will convene to facilitate conversations centered on topics
including fashion technology and innovation.
Bad hair day? Forget about it. Throughout the week, TreSemmé will be hosting styling appointments at NYFW:The Shows
Salon. TreSemmé will also present a NYFW:The Talks panel to discuss fluidity in fashion and beauty.
